The Ram 1500 Classic is the Ideal Pickup for Enthusiasts

Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.

Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic

The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.

Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.

Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.

In 2021 they recognized the Ram 1500 for its versatility, capability, and overall high performance as a pickup that can get the job done.

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year and the High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades come from the 2021 Texas Motor Press Association event that recognizes the best vehicles in the industry. Ram has done a superb job with their Ram 1500.

The Ram does all that and more with the latest technology and safety features. About the Ram 1500, the president of the Texas Motor Press Association Bryan Grant said,

“The challenging off-road trails were no problem for Ram 1500 TRX as it easily trekked over the roads with massive horsepower, multiple drive modes and lofty ground clearance. It was so much fun to experience the truck conquer the trails. We all took notice of the wild animal roar exhaust note off in the distance,” said Bryan Grant, the president of Texas Motor Press Association.

Given the Ram 1500’s capabilities, many recognize it as an industry-standard pickup truck. The Ram truck brand was first started in 2009. It began as a stand-alone division focused on meeting the needs and demands of truck buyers. The brand has grown exponentially over the years as it has expanded its lineup with vehicles like the Ram 1500, Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, and 3500/4500/5500 series Chassis Cabs. The brand also offers its ProMaster vans which allow groups to travel together with their equipment. Overall Ram has stayed true to its mission of building trucks that get hard work done and take families where they need to go.

Ram will continue to build on its lineup as it offers higher performance, greater convenience, and lasting durability. The automaker has racked up award after award each year. As the years go by, people will continue to depend on a strong pickup. With their new Know and Go mobile app, Ram is aiming to increase customer satisfaction and deliver more immersive experiences.

2021 Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Light-Duty Pickups in New APEAL Study

Ram has earned yet another accolade for its Ram 1500 pickup. According to the J.D. Power 2021 Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. This APEAL study uses consumer sentiment and feedback to gauge which vehicle is more favorable. Overall, the Dodge brand managed to rank first for the second year in a row. For Ram, the automaker took second place, also for the second year in a row. 2021 has been a great year for both automakers. Ram has seen much success with its Ram 1500 with several package options and trims being released like the 2022 Ram 1500 Backcountry. With consumer satisfaction at its highest, the automaker looks to continue to enjoy its success. 

Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Pickups

According to the 2021 APEAL study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. The high-performing pickup has dominated markets for a while now. In 2020 the pickup earned the same first-place ranking, thus solidifying it as an optimal pickup truck. The APEAL study gauges consumer satisfaction by looking at feedback during the first three months of ownership. Vehicle attributes like seating comfort, throttle response, and other key characteristics make up a score based on a 1,000 point scale. About their market success, the Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America Mark Champine said,

“I said last year that we would keep the throttle wide open, and these various results demonstrate our continuing resolve to do so,” said Mark Champine. “We remain on a mission to do better for our customers, and we know we have more work to do.”

Mark Champine, Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America

The APEAL study aggregates all the characteristics of each nominated vehicle and gives each a score out of 1,000. For the 2021 Ram 1500, the APEAL score totaled 881. This score was 10 points higher than the 2020 APEAL study which means Ram has managed to raise and solidify the Ram 1500’s status as a great pickup to own. Along with the APEAL score, Ram as a brand managed to place second within the automotive industry. This was a step up from last year as the automaker had placed third among mass markets brands.

The 2021 Ram 1500 has earned Ram a spot among the best automotive companies. The tough pickup managed to raise the automaker to the highest echelons with its high performance, tough durability, and iconic look. The Ram 1500 will continue to play a dominating role within the pickup truck sphere. As automakers move toward electric vehicles, we’ll have to see how consumer satisfaction and sentiment react to changes. It seems automakers have been split between moving toward new innovations like with Tesla’s Cybertruck and keeping to traditional aspects like with Ford’s F-150 Lightning. Either way, the consumers will have the power to choose. We will be looking forward to the 2022 APEAL study and its findings.
